Killer dig today! The spot I found was covered in rocks, but dated back to the 1700s! There were bottles in all the crevices! I'm out of breath already, lol, so I'll just show you guys the finds!

Wow that's an excellent dig! Sure aren't that many dumps with pontil bottles in them left these days, that's a pretty rare find! Amazing that so many managed to survive in a rocky site too.
